I have a keen interest in how exercise and physical activity can be used to improve health and prevent, or treat chronic diseases. I coordinate a range of rehabilitation programmes that are run at Oxstalls Campus. I believe students learn best when they have the opportunity to gain practical experience alongside their classroom-based learning.
